Toddlers & Tiaras: Halloween Bash (2011) :troll::troll::joshua::joshua::joshua: Horrifying, mind-bending, disturbing, shocking; and that's just the presenter at the pageant! My first and hopefully last look at this reality show, I'm actually somewhat shocked to say it's not as bad as I thought it'd be. The oddest thing was the ultra conservative christian mom who wanted her daughter to win the Halloween pageant. That and she was black with a white daughter. The rest was about what I expected. The Mummy (1932) :troll::troll::troll::troll::joshua: Fixes a lot of what was wrong with Todd Browning's Dracula, while maintaining the excellent acting with Karloff, Zita Johann and Van Sloan. The opening is magnificent with a very Renfield/Frye-esque performance. It paints itself into a bit of a corner at the end but manages to work its way out. The Black Cat (1934) :troll::troll::troll::troll::joshua: Takes a modern art deco approach to horror, with that classic hate and vengeance festering underneath the performances between Karloff and Lugosi. The script gets a little dopey but its focus on the psychological warfare between these nemesis is a refreshing and satisfying tale. Doctor X (1932) :troll::troll::troll::troll::joshua: The failed comedy can't take away from the kitchen sink approach for this horror film. The 2-strip technicolor is enthralling with the lurid mix of underlying sex and violence oozing out of every frame. Highly recommended.
